    I am wondering if option t (test) works.

    In batch mode using command line, I archived a file using 7-zip into zip format and then repeated the process with the t option and it said taht everything was ok.

    This was not the fact as I had edited the original to test the test process.. What does it test please?

    Kind Regards
    Greg.

      Just a guess, but I think testing is just uncompressing the archive to memory, writing nothing on the disc. If everything unpacks OK then the archive is valid.
